The 2014 SEMA Auto Show is just around the corner so Mopar’s been extremely busy these days with plenty of products headed to Las Vegas. Two, in particular, are of the Dodge Charger variety, one of which is the Charger R/T Mopar Concept. The conceptual preview version may not have the dealership immediacy another SEMA-bound Charger, the Charger Scat Pack, but it does provide a good indication on what the meaty, four-door muscle car could look after spending some time on Mopar’s operating table.

The Charger R/T Mopar Concept isn’t meant to dramatically alter our perception of the Charger. Instead, Mopar opted for more subtle improvements, enough at least to give the Charger a little more pep in its step. It’s debatable if the Charger really does need one, but for the sake of the R/T Mopar Concept, let’s just say that it does.

It features a healthy dose of Mopar products, carefully added for both aesthetic and aerodynamic reasons. It even gets a fancy, new exterior paint, a set of massive wheels, and engine modifications that gives the four-door muscle car a “jolt” of added power. That’s a nice way of putting it, although it would have been really nice if Dodge and/or Mopar actually revealed how much “jolt” the Charger really got.

Remember, the Charger already packs a 5.7-liter, Hemi, V-8 engine that pumps out 370 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque on its own.

Hopefully, Mopar spills the beans when the Charger R/T Mopar Concept is unveiled at the 2014 SEMA Auto Show together with the entire Mopar-tuned brood.

You have to appreciate Mopar’s subtlety with this program, especially since it seems to run counter to the Charger’s bombastic reputation. But Mopar makes it work, especially with new components like the front spoiler, rear valance, and side sills. All three were created in-house and provide the Charger with improved handling and aerodynamic capabilities. The one-piece spoiler is another Mopar creation, sitting comfortably on the rear and giving the Charger improved downforce.

Aesthetically, the Charger R/T Mopar Concept was given a TorRed exterior finish that creates a nice contrast with the gloss-black foof. The two-color setup also plays well with the 20-inch Granite Chrystal forged Mopar wheels. Pay close attention to these wheels because most of Mopar’s SEMA offerings carry the same versions.

The final piece to this Mopar-created tuning kit is the cold-air intake adds that aforementioned jolt of extra power. Cold-air intakes are more about resposiveness than power, so only expect a few-horsepower gain, if any.

Rounding out the mods is a coil-over kit, front and rear sway bars, and front and rear strut-tower braces to help the Charger R/T Mopar Concept handle the curves a little better.

Press Release

The world’s only four-door muscle car is transformed with a healthy selection of Mopar parts and accessories, creating the Dodge Charger R/T Mopar Concept vehicle.

The current Charger’s update of old-school muscle is further fleshed out by plugging in unique new Mopar products, including a front splitter, as well as Mopar side sills and sill extensions that boost handling and aerodynamic characteristics. At the rear, a unique Mopar valance frames the exhaust tips. A unique Mopar one-piece rear spoiler rises high, resulting in more downforce and a more dynamic rear profile.

The gloss black bedecked roof plays off the TorRed exterior paint. Granite Chrystal low gloss colors the forged Mopar lightweight 20-by-9-inch wheels, a feature included on many 2014 Mopar SEMA vehicles, reinforcing the positioning of the lightweight rims as the company’s go-to performance wheel.

A Mopar cold air intake adds a jolt of horsepower to the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine of the Dodge Charger R/T Mopar Concept. Additional Mopar performance mods include a coil over kit, front and rear sway bars and front and rear strut tower braces.
